I’m a huge fan of classic detective fiction, everything from Agatha Christie to Raymond Chandler, and really keen to find something in this area, whether more conventional or with a high-concept/speculative twist. Would love a gripping locked-room mystery #mswl

I’m keen for all kinds of crime and thrillers, from police procedurals to psychological thrillers to anything high-concept with a big hook. I read very widely in this area so open to almost anything, whether commercial or more literary #mswl

I'm also on the lookout for high concept love stories - ones with a strong central pitch. This might be a techy twist, or perhaps something slightly magical or speculative. #mswl

For YA, I love contemporary coming of age, fantasy grounded in reality, near-future dystopia, and high-concept speculative. Psychological thrillers that push the envelope. Truly twisty mysteries. Literary ghost stories. #MSWL

Romance: I'm looking for contemporary romance and rom-coms with a fresh hook and voice, high concept, as well as clear chemistry. I don't currently have a favorite trope, but I always love tension of all sorts and lots of humor :)

@GlamEditor_Girl Latoya would love to see high-concept commercial and upmarket fiction, particularly women's fiction and thriller. I am also open to nonfiction proposals but an established platform is a must! #MSWL #literaryagent #amquerying #WritingCommunity #writers

Broadly, I and my colleagues at Disney are looking for big bets with high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting and pacing, and the potential to become lead titles. #MSWL 4/?

Thank you all for the congrats on my promotion! For my #MSWL, I'd love to see more big diverse family sagas like @anndcardinal's The Storyteller's Death. I'd also love a high concept, high heat romance that is akin to what @katee_robert is doing with her Dark Olympus series.

If you’ve got a middle grade or YA high-concept fantasy where the diverse cast of protagonists try their best to be good and kind in the face of evil, like in THE DRAGON PRINCE, my inbox is open! #mswl
